Appin XC track maintenance

Below is a preview, click to read the full post
When: 
Saturday, 21 April, 2012 - 08:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Appin
Meeting Point: 

North end of Burke St, Appin. There's a small parking area here at the trail head.

Note that the map shows Market Street connecting Appin Rd to this location but that is actually a firetrail and will not work for drivers who should take King St (next block South) and enter from there.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

Bring your own tools if possible. I'll try to ge some from WMBC as well. We've got a few options due to all the good work done in the previous months. I'd like to walk my proposed reroute of the Fall Line point with some people to get their opinions of it. That should only take 30 minutes at the most. We may be able to start cutting it in and with a good sized team possibly get it finished on the day. Another option is to do a bit of rock armouring and drainage work on the 'new' singletrack after Kings Falls Bridge from the firetrail.

Hi all, WSMTB will be carrying out some track work at Yellomundee on Sunday 11 March (9.30am - 12) to get what tracks we can back into reasonable condition. All riders with an interest are welcome to attend - even mores so if you are a YRP user. We need whipper snippers and cutters. BBQ by WSMTB afterwards - and hopefully a ride. Volunteers received 10 points toward the club xc series point score.

Weather updates will be posted on www.wsmtb.com and on the club FB page.

Please contact me at xc@wsmtb.com if you can come.

thanks

Short notice but here we go;

So I and as many others that care to join are planning on giving knapsack a bit of a spruce up, by picking up as much rubbish as possible! Everyone should come along for at least an hour or so to get the place looking nice and to show the community we care.

Bring your own tools if possible. I'll try to ge some from WMBC as well. We'll probably be cleaning up the drainage on the second half of the track - from the roll down/bridge back to the carpark. If we get enough people it would be nice to send off one team/pair to do the short reroute on the descent to the bridge while the rest work on the drains. Don't forget sunscreen, gloves and plenty of water.
